We Can’t Fight Hate With More Hate

We Can’t Fight Hate With More Hate

RIP George Floyd - We Can’t Fight Hate With More Hate

This week, as you’ve all seen on the news, George Floyd was killed by a police officer, as the officer slowly choked him to death by kneeling on his throat. This news is so saddening, because in addition to the tragedy of a man losing his life, it shows how far we still have to go as a country to defeat hate and become a nation based on the principles of equality enshrined in our Constitution.

With a heavy heart, Vivian and I are going to use this opportunity to turn pain into fuel and talk about the difficulty we are both having processing this event. We can’t solve the big political problems, and we’re not going to tell you how you should vote. But we can tell you how to deal with hate in your own life, and how you can choose to make pain better or worse.

So please join us on an episode of God, Money & Purpose that was difficult to record, but a necessary early step in healing the pain we are all going through right now.
